Do you shy away from wearing backless dresses and spaghetti-straps due to acne or dark marks on your back? Instead of resorting to makeup and fully-covered clothing, why not consider a more effective and permanent solution?
If you are tired of your back acne or scars and want to get rid of them once and for all, you’ve come to the right place.
What is Back Acne?
Before we dive into the solutions, let’s understand why you have back acne in the first place.
Acne – on your back, face, or anywhere else – occurs when oil glands and skin cells start misbehaving. Sebaceous glands in your skin start to produce too much oil, which leads to hair follicles issues. As a result, you have clogged skin pores that are full of dirt and bacteria. This is how blackheads, whiteheads, pustules, or full-blown acne comes into the picture.
All of this havoc can be caused by a variety of issues – wearing tight clothing or un-breathable fabrics, not cleaning the skin after working out, eating too many fried foods or sugary treats, etc. In some cases, back acne can also be genetic.
Back Acne and Scar Treatments
At DermaClinic in Coral Gables, we often get asked if there is a home remedy to treat acne or get rid of acne scars. Unfortunately, acne can change the texture of skin permanently which means home remedies are seldom effective in treating it. With time, the scars can get lighter but they will never completely go away – unless you undergo a professional back acne treatment.
Chemical Peels for Back Acne
Treatments like chemical peels for back acne not only reduce the appearance of scars and dark marks, but they also eliminate the risk of acne in the future.
During a chemical peel treatment, our expert dermatologists will use acids at different concentrations to heal your back acne and reduce any hyperpigmentation. The acid will exfoliate your skin and remove the topmost layer, getting rid of the damaged and scarred skin. The acid will be left on your “problematic” skin areas for 3 to 5 minutes.
It will also unclog the pores, improve skin texture, and even out the skin tone in that area. At DermaClinic, we offer a wide variety of treatments that are specifically designed to treat and prevent back acne. In addition to chemical peels, we also offer MicroNeedling, MicroDermabrasion, and LED Light Therapy, all of which are treatments that have shown excellent results in patients suffering from back acne.
There are different hydroxy acids that have proven to be very effective in treating back acne, such as Jessner’s Solution, Glycolic Acid, Salicylic Acid, Pyruvic Acid, and Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA). The type of acid we use will depend on how intense your back acne is.
Moreover, you can also go for a laser treatment to get rid of any scars and pigmentation on your back. The laser works on reducing all types of acne, regardless of its location on your body. The number of laser sessions you need will depend on how severe the scarring is. However, most of our patients experience noticeable results after only two sessions.
During your initial consultation, our experienced dermatologists will carefully examine your skin and overall health to determine which back acne treatment will be the most effective for you.
